The Changing Nature of Work

This title in honor of the panel I’m working to manifest.

Inside Higher Ed reports the result of an ASA survey on adjuncting in Sociology departments and finds the percentage of permenant (read: tenure and tenure track) faculty has remained relatively stable over the last six years, despite an increase in the ratio of majors-to-faculty.  The conclusion?  We’re teaching more.  I shudder to think about those folks at “Masters II” who have transitioned from a 3-3 to a 4-4.  Anyone care to sing a round of the Internationale?
